The Sierra Nevada contains Yosemite Valley, famous for its glacially
carved domes, and Sequoia National Park, home to the largest living
organisms on Earth, the giant sequoia trees, and the highest point
in the contiguous United States, Mount Whitney. The tallest living
things on Earth, the ancient redwood trees, dot the coastline,
mainly north of San Francisco. California is also home to the
lowest and hottest place in the Western Hemisphere, Death Valley.
Visit the coastal town of Eureka on California's Redwood Coast,

Central Valley is home to California's important agricultural
industry, the largest of any state.
